“I don’t wear makeup for others the same way I don’t decorate my house for others.
This is my home & everything I do is for
Today I wanted to share a little discovery I came across while browsing through Sephora. These are not new, in fact they were launched in 2017 yet here I am just noticing them. I’ll admit, my visits to Sephora are usually for the higher-end makeup brands I can’t find at my local drugstore so I’ve rarely paid attention to the Sephora in-house line of products. I love to be pleasantly surprised and in fact was very much so last summer when looking for a tinted moisturizer and the makeup artist who was helping me suggested I try the Sephora brand Matte Perfection Tinted Moisturizer; It’s one I reach for a lot ever since.
The #LipStories is a collection of 30 shades that range from Matte, to Cream to Metallic Finishes. I honestly don’t find a big difference in the feel of the Matte to the Cream (IMO they’re both creamy) lipsticks. I generally enjoy making my eyes the centre of attention when doing my makeup (more than my lips) so the colours I purchased are rich in colour but still neutral if that makes sense. These are the ones I purchased. Oh and did I mention they’re $10! Hello! Go get a bunch.
Brunch date is a creamy butterscotch shade that will go with any eye makeup and skin tone. I love that the packaging of these lipsticks are in recyclable cardboard too. The picture is of a French style bistro. Truly an easy shade to wear in the daytime and one I’ll gravitate to for a fresh Sunday Morning Brunch Date look.
Oui is a lovely nude with a hint of natural pink; My lips “but better” shade. A fresh Spring/Summer colour, subtle but with a pop. I’m envisioning a garden wedding makeup look. Yes please.
Spring Break is such a nice shade. A bright pink yet still neutral. Easy to take from a day to night look. I think of all the shades I got, this one suits me best. What do you think?
Hong Kong By Night
Hong Kong by Night is stunning. Definitely a rich almost brick metallic colour. Reddish Orange undertones. This colour would go great with a gold eyeshadow for a night out. Even with a simple cat eye to let the lips be the centre of attention. Like no other shade in my collection.
Labyrinth City screams Autumn to me. Paired with big dark shades and chunky oatmeal coloured turtleneck; I just want to wear this colour and walk under an October sunshine with crunching leaves underfoot. It’s brown but not boring. I’ve been looking for a shade like this for a long time. Alas!
With 30 shades I’m sure you will find something you’ll love. If you like creamy, satin finish lipsticks, these are for you. I hope you’ve enjoyed my try-on haul today. For $10 I can say these give any of my designer brand lipsticks a run for their money. Good job Sephora.
